We are a high quality food retailer situated in the Vale of York on the A166 between Gate Helmsley and Stamford Bridge. Our motto ‘Fewer Food Miles – More Farm Yards’ encompasses everything we stand for. We pride ourselves on our 'superfresh' homegrown produce.

    A great day out for all the family... 'pick your own' in the summer, feed the animals, have fun in the children's play area, or simply relax in the landscaped cafe garden. We hope to see you soon. Open 7 days a week.


    We want to thank you - Lots of rewards for our loyal customers
